The KickStart is a solid-state over-energization
power supply. It provides fast, repeatable energization of 24 VDC
solenoids, including those on wrap-spring clutches. By reducing response
time, cycle rates in high speed applications can be increased dramatically.
Optically-isolated logic input permits direct interface with PLC output
modules and other logic-level components. No additional relays or
switches are needed, so wiring is simplified and reliability is enhanced.
Timing of control input is not critical—input can be left ON without
overheating the solenoid coil. The KickStart supplies a one-shot
pulse to energize the load.
With a 24 VDC control signal on terminals 1,2, a solid-state switch closes
and the built-in over-energization circuit supplies 150 V peak to the
load. After the energy stored in the over-energization circuit has
been transferred to the load, the circuit turns itself off and begins
recharging for the next cycle.
The output switch incorporates a fast flux decay circuit to ensure rapid
turn-off of the load. No protective components are needed with inductive
1. Initiating contact may be any switch, transistor, photo or proximity
sensor, or PLC output capable of switching 10 mA at 24 VDC. Current
sourcing or sinking can be used.
2. Terminal 2 can be grounded.
